Dylan, a 12-year-old terrier, was distraught when his owner died after contracting Covid. Dylan was taken to a Dogs Trust centre in Shoreham, West Sussex, where he was cared for. Adel Burnett, Shoreham Rehoming Centre Manager, said: “Dylan was very shut down when he arrived, after such a big change in circumstances, his life as he knew it had been shattered and despite our best efforts to make him feel as comfortable as possible, kennel life just wasn’t for him.

“Luckily, we had just recruited a new foster carer to our Home from Home scheme called Andrea who was now working remotely and found herself in a position to be able to provide temporary care for our dogs.

“Dylan was Andrea’s first foster dog and he seemed to feel better almost as soon as he stepped his paws through the door – gobbling up his meals and playing with his toys.

“Once Dylan’s confident, cheeky and loving side started to show, it took hardly any time at all for us to find a great new home for him. “

Just 25 days after arriving at the Dogs Trust centre, Dylan was adopted by Alison and her husband Leslie. They have now renamed him Bob Dylan.

Alison said: “He’s now been living with us for a month and he’s settled really well. He’s a lovely dog.

“We had an elderly Jack Russell before who we adopted from Dogs Trust back in 2013, he was also 12 years old. Cedric died two years ago and we missed him so much that we decided we wanted a bit of a gap to honour his memory.

“It’s lovely going out for long walks with Bob Dylan. He still has so much energy! We go four miles and he’s still go, go, go. He is a really sharp little chap and knows where his home is.

“He’s very wilful and has a lot of spirit and strength of character, loves his food and being with you, preferably sitting on your knee!”

Adel said: “It is so wonderful to know that Bob Dylan has found his forever home, along with many other dogs that we have been able to ‘Change the Tale’ for, thanks to people like the Gibbons family choosing to adopt.

“We know that the pandemic, and its economic repercussions, is having devastating effects on some people’s lives and their ability to care for their pets. 

“Unfortunately, we believe the worst is yet to come and we will do all we can to help those dogs and owners in need of our support.”
